Maybe a picture of Dubrovnik as a background? Thank you again.

: Russia, and not having an easy time of it.
: During supper Marina turned to an American
: friend who had just arrived from Hollywood.
: "I am so tired of being poor!" she
: said. "I wonder if you could get me a
: film test in Hollywood?" It might just
: have come about, too, except that later in
: the summer Princess Marina went to Dubrovnik
: on the Dalmatian coast for a holiday, and
: there met another holidayer - Prince George,
: afterwards Duke of Kent. They fell in love
: and were married before the year was out.
